September 1, 2018 , Windsor, Ontario - The Dodge Durango’s combination of uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling make it the Dodge Charger of the three-row SUV segment. For 2019, Dodge continues to demonstrate Durango’s proven performance, utility and comfort with the SRT model, appearance packages and an available soft-touch hand-wrapped instrument panel.
 
Durango’s standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission is paired with the award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine rated at up to 295 horsepower (hp) and 260 lb-ft of torque and best-in-class towing capability of 2,812 kilogram (kg) (6,200 lb), while the classic 5.7-litre HEMI® V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque and class-leading towing capability of 3,265 kg (7,200 lb). The Durango SRT relies on the proven 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 to deliver 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to go from 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 4.4 seconds and covering the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds as certified by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), all while outhauling every three-row full-size SUV on the road with a best-in-class towing capability of 3,946 kg (8,700 lb).

The latest technology for 2019 includes a programmable digital instrument cluster, available class-exclusive 9-inch dual screen Blu-ray and DVD player, available 19-speaker Harman/Kardon premium audio system, 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen radio with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, new available integrated trailer brake when equipped with the Trailer Tow package and a function to view trailer items through the rear-mounted camera while the Durango is in motion. Durango’s available three-row seating offers spaciousness and flexibility with 2,406 litres (85 cu. ft.) of cargo capacity and up to 50 different seating configurations, including available second-row captain’s chairs.

New for 2019:
  • Durango GT now features a performance front fascia
  • Dodge Durango models now offer an integrated trailer brake when equipped with the available Trailer Tow Package
  • Durango Citadel, R/T and SRT models are available with an 825-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system that delivers opulent sound and refinement

  • Durango SRT models now offer available red seat belts
  • Durango R/T models now feature available Sepia leather seats
  • New 20-inch wheel designs available on Durango GT and R/T in a Satin Carbon or Burnished Bronze finish and an optional SRT wheel in Matte Vapor or Burnished Bronze

Highlights:
  • Dodge Durango SRT is loaded with performance features designed to make it North America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV ever, including the proven 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8, which delivers 475 hp, 470 lb-ft of torque, 4.4 second 0-60 mph acceleration, NHRA-certified 12.9-second quarter mile and best-in-class towing capability of 3,946 kg (8,700 lb)
  • The available 5.7-litre HEMI V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 3,265 kg (7,200 lb). Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder-deactivation seamlessly alternates between smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode and V-8 mode when more power is in demand
  • Durango’s standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine generates 293 hp (up to 295 hp) and 260 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with the V-6, Durango can tow a best-in-class 2,812 kg (6,200 lb). In addition, engine stop-start (ESS) is standard on the V-6 and lowers emissions while also saving fuel
  • A driver’s SUV, the 2019 Dodge Durango delivers excitement and modernized refinement thanks to its world-class suspension, structural refinements and performance driving characteristics, all of which are usually found on premium performance SUVs at much higher price points
  • Dodge Durango’s all-wheel drive (AWD) enhances driver confidence by leveraging the Durango’s 50/50 weight distribution. The Durango SRT also features standard AWD. The Durango’s three available AWD systems greatly enhance the vehicle’s traction and handling
  • While competitors have switched to front-wheel-drive, car-based platforms, the 5.7-litre and 6.4-litre HEMI-powered AWD Durango models feature a low-range transfer case with a neutral position. Low range improves light off-road performance and helps ease manoeuvres, such as pulling a boat up a steep launch or backing up with a trailer. The neutral position in the transfer case allows the vehicle to be flat-towed without damaging powertrain components
  • The 2019 Dodge Durango features a standard eight-speed automatic transmission with driver-oriented electronic shifter and available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters
  • The seats in the 2019 Dodge Durango can be configured in up to 50 different ways
  • Families with three or more children will find the Durango’s available captain’s chairs with pass-through especially helpful as child safety seats can be latched into each second-row seat, and there’s still easy pass-through for passengers to walk between to get to the third row
  • A versatile 60/40 split folding second-row seat conveniently folds and tumbles. Transporting long items, like 10-foot 2x4s, is not a problem as the left side of the second-row folds 60 per cent, allowing the versatility of folding the 40 per cent seat in tandem with the front passenger fold-flat seat. To make passengers more comfortable, second-row seats also are available with heat and they recline 18 degrees
  • The third-row seat features a 50/50 split and is easily folded from the rear of the vehicle. For even more utility, both the second- and third-row seats fold to provide a flat load floor. A switch in the instrument panel remotely lowers third-row headrests when not in use
  • Hands-free communication is included with both the standard 7-inch or available 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, the latter of which is the largest touchscreen in its class. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard on all Durango models
  • Durango offers a class-exclusive Blu-ray video rear entertainment system with two high-resolution 9-inch screens, one on each front seat back. Each screen allows customers to watch their movies on Blu-ray or standard DVDs or play their gaming systems via inputs for HDMI or RCA cables for each screen integrated into the front seat backs. Wireless headphones are included as is a wireless remote
  • The 2019 Dodge Durango offers consumers more than 60 standard and available safety and security features with seven standard air bags, including full-length three-row side-curtain airbags, standard front-seat mounted side-thorax air bags, front-row active head restraints, standard trailer-sway control, available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, 9-1-1 and Roadside Assistance
